I think having a great idea is vastly overrated. I know it sounds kind of crazy and counterintuitive. I don’t think it matters what the idea is almost. You need great execution. A lot of people say they’ve got this great idea, and “if only I had the capital” they’d go out and do it. Usually this is a fantasy. It’s just an excuse for not confronting their fear of failing. – Felix Dennis
